Allergy to Sutures.

Hey Dr. Kim,
I have read that it is possible to be allergic to sutures. I have very sensitive skin and plenty of allergies. I'm wondering if there is a test for me to find out if I am allergic to sutures used for breast augmentation.

Dr. David Kim is on a distinguished road
I haven't really had a patient with allergies to sutures although some people will tend to spit out sutures instead of dissolving them. I don't know of any testing for allergies to sutures.
